American Catch book cover

American Catch

The United States controls more ocean than any country. But 90% of the seafood we eat is from abroad. From New York oysters, to Gulf shrimp to Alaskan salmon, American Catch peels back the layers of environmental destruction, greed and just plain stupidity to reveal how the U.S. became the world’s largest seafood debtor nation. But with hope and humor the book offers readers a roadmap for renewing their relationship with their home coasts.
